    Tips for getting the most out of reading to your child:

    1.Make sure to find a comfortable spot and a time when you have no other distractions.
    2.Before reading take a"picture walk" through the book and see if your child can predict what the book is going to be about.
    3. Point out the cover of the book and the back of the book and show your child were the title is and what the title of the book is.
